On entering the show, Clark described Ringo as a "good-hearted kid", who does the normal things that a 16-year-old kid does. In 2009, it was announced that Clark was to take a three-month break from Neighbours to focus on his music career. Clark returned to filming in February 2010. In July 2010, Clark announced that he would be leaving Neighbours in order to focus more on his music career.
